    A cleaner, less bulky version of this map can be downloaded
    in the "Mods" repository on the main page. Any future updates
    will be made to that file. Cheers!



    Baja Hills

    I present Baja Hills, my first map! This began as a test map and still is in a lot of respects.
    Driving and atmosphere are the goals.

    Place zip in Documents/BeamNG.drive/mods.

    A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE BELOW!

    Test group: Ouerbacker, Joeyfuller2000, Burilkovdeni, Jammin2222, Monte379, Sando

    Assets: Ouerbacker (Distant terrain), Occam's Razor (traffic signs), Doullpepper (guardrail texture),
    LFHutch (for all the stock BeamNG goodness)

    A big thanks for all the great compliments in the community and I hope you like it!

    Off roading and AI chasing are fun and if someone wants to add a time attack scenario
    I think the roads in this map are perfect for it!:cool:

    Please do not upload this map or any of it's contents without permission of me

    or the content owners listed above! - Thank You, Aboroath.

    Cheers!

    Thanks a lot mate for this very very beautiful atmosphere!! :D

    screenshot_00017.jpg screenshot_00018.jpg

    What say! Colors and textures are perfect, the disposition of groundcover very realistic...

    Also a good technical track , (a lot of crashes for me at the first lap...:p) : speed lines and hard turns , good technical path.... NEED NOW A TIME ATTACK!

    I am verry happy to see this good work, it motivates me to go on my work ;)

    Ahh! Just a little suggestion if you are interested :confused: Maybe the road variation for more realism and speed effect when you drive :cool::

    This map looks awesome. I really hope you get the atmosphere just right, because for some reason in almost all the stock maps, they just don't feel right. They're fun to drive on, but not really pretty to look at. I don't know if it's graphical limitations of torque, or just mediocre map design, but they're just not aesthetically appealing. East coast is one exception, but barely. My favorite map right now is black hills, and maybe this if it looks just as good in game. I enjoy them not necessarily because they are fun to drive, but because they just look and feel right. My biggest dilemma in gaming right now is The Crew, because that game looks beautiful, but it's not fun to drive or play. With this game, its fun to drive and crash, but the environments just don't feel right, with the exception of blackhills and maybe this map.

    Anyways, you got me ranting so it's got to be a good, fun map.

    I felt the same way (still do!),about Blackhills. It was the map that turned my world upside down in the
    atmosphere department and I never looked back. Baja Hills is a direct result of the inspiration and realism
    of Blackhills. That and the fact I was born and raised in Arizona:p.

    Torque is a cool engine but I'm certainly no expert. I think of it as a visual art that comes from ones mind
    and if you know what you want there are ways and tweaks to make it a reality.:D

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ideas, ideas, ideas!......I could have spent forever adding stuff but I needed to release this for the experience.
    Definitely with the harsh environment pavement wear and tear is a must!

    Cool!!! I will check that out and thanks!!

    Glad you like it! and thank you!

    Looks really awesome! This is definitely a very nice looking map. Looks very fun to drive on too!

    Once you completely finish this map, are you going to continue with Forest Hills?
